I\’m directed to this:
Richard Murphy (Tax Research LLP) has been providing a lot of technical support. But please note he is a freelance consultant, so there are limits on what support he can provide without remuneration!
Seems entirely fair to me.
I was asked to do a quick paper just recently and I had to point out that part of my living comes from scribbling for people. If you want a few hundred words of stream of consciousness stuff, as with a blog post, sure, fine.
You want a few thousand of something more considered then yes, you do need to make a contribution to my mortgage/beer bill.
There\’s all sorts of things to pound the man for but making a living isn\’t one of them.
